Tidewater Regional EMS Partners,

Unfortunately, like many other organizations, we are having to postpone our Tidewater Healthcare Education Expo “Resilience in action... answering the call, managing the stress” scheduled for April 28-May 3, 2020 because of COVID-19. As healthcare professionals, we know large gatherings contribute to the spread of the coronavirus, but we also know that the education and information received at this Expo is important, that’s why we are working to secure a future date, tentatively July 28 - August 2, 2020. Be sure to follow us on social media as well as on our website www.tidewaterems.org/expo. Thank you for all you are doing to help get our country through this crisis and please stay safe!
